The headline from ABC News was designed to startle: “Exclusive: FBI Video Shows Al Qaeda in Kentucky Handling Heavy Weapons.”
The story went on to relate that an al-Qaida-linked terrorist who had fought in Iraq and killed American troops had settled in Kentucky. He was one of possibly “dozens” of terrorists allowed in the country because of a flawed refugee vetting program.
The “terrorist,” Waad Ramadan Alwan, was recorded in 2010 by the FBI expertly “field stripping” a Russian-made weapon during a sting operation. There were also still photos of Alwan and another man handling missile launchers and grenade launchers. The weapons, we’re told, were supplied by the FBI after they were rendered “inoperable.”
The two terrorists were arrested in 2011 and later pleaded guilty to terror-related crimes. We are led to believe they are now safely ensconced in some Federal hoosegow at an undisclosed location, though the way some of the accused 9/11 hijackers, Osama bin Laden, Anwar al-Awlaki and other “terrorists” have been disappeared and reappeared over the dozen years since the War on Terror began in 2001 should leave everyone skeptical.
This is a non-story. It occurred three years ago. It was resolved two years ago. So what was its purpose?
As I said earlier, it was designed to startle. It was a propaganda piece for the state security apparatus, which must keep an ample amount of fear ginned up to keep the populace accepting of the growing police state. It goes along with the intermittent alerts we get from the state propaganda machine warning of imminent terror attacks that never occur, always based on “chatter” gleaned by the spying apparatus.
It turns out the FBI is the common denominator in all recent terror attacks and “attempted” terror attacks on U.S. soil. In fact, as Randy Weaver and the Branch Davidians learned, the FBI is a terror organization all its own.
So either the FBI was the terrorist organization or FBI had created and armed the terrorists or the FBI knew the terrorists and allowed them — either through design or incompetence — to carry out their terror attacks (as in the case of 9/11 and the Boston Marathon bombing).
Using these and other “terror” incidents, the psychopathic elected parasite class, their bureaucratic enablers and the Federal government security complex have created what they consider justification for liberty-stealing laws like the USA Patriot Act and National Defense Authorization Act, the Gestapo-like Department of Homeland Security and its evil stepchild, the Transportation Security Administration, and the National Security Agency spying apparatus. These and other programs have turned a once-free United States into an Orwellian nightmare of “stop and frisk” policies, roaming spy mobiles, no-fly lists and Stasi-like “See something, say something” home spying programs. And for the most part, Americans have accepted it as a way of life with hardly a whimper of protest.
President Barack Obama said last week on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” that the odds of people dying in a terrorist attack are a lot less than dying in a car accident.
